Vantage Point, The Analysis



Author: Poetry of Robert Lee Frost Type: Poetry Views: 536





If tired of trees I seek again mankind,

Well I know where to hie me--in the dawn,

To a slope where the cattle keep the lawn.

There amid lolling juniper reclined,

Myself unseen, I see in white defined

Far off the homes of men, and farther still,

The graves of men on an opposing hill,

Living or dead, whichever are to mind.



And if by noon I have too much of these,

I have but to turn on my arm, and lo,

The sun-burned hillside sets my face aglow,

My breathing shakes the bluet like a breeze,

I smell the earth, I smell the bruisèd plant,

I look into the crater of the ant.

Robert Frost’s poem The Vantage Point tells of a man who is lost in the world of people so seeks refuge in nature. A vantage point is a viewpoint from which someone is able to see a wide range of things. The vantage point in the poem is where the man goes to watch the human world while remaining separate from it. Robert Frost could relate to the man in the poem as he spent most of his life as an outcast living apart from everyone else. Since Robert Frost failed as a poet and most of other things he tried in life, he was set apart from society and found himself and comfort in nature.

I believe this poem means that the speaker is looking out upon the world of nature and the world of man and feeling to be a part of both. He can see the good and the bad of each and can also relate to what is happening in each world without having to be physically involved in either. It also bears a vague resemblance to Edna St. Vincent Millay\'s \"Afternoon on a Hill\" in that respect.The difference being that the speaker in \"Afternoon on a Hill\" is more attached to the life of men.

I think, like, Robert Frost is toats cool, bro. He\'s all like writing about nature and like everything is cool. Robert Frost is cool. I don\'t understand the meaning of this poem, but then again, I kinda hate my life anyways.

In my opinion, the forest represents literally the woods where Frost goes, but figuratively Frost\'s isolation, both good and bad.

Rober Frost is a nature lover and the fact that every poem he writes has some form of nature in it. Knowing this helps one break down the poem to under stand that the narrator is examining nature and humanity by changing vantage points the narrator can see the good and bad qualities of each.

The two stanzas represent the duality between nature and humanity, with each stanza highlighting different aspects - also slightly dual in nature - of their respective subjects. The narrator is referred to in an almost God-like way, detached from it all, unseen by the people, and ALMOST unnoticed by nature (line 12). The only description of the narrator's character is that he gets tired of things, suggesting a balance is necessary between the two dualities. I believe "The Vantage Point" refers to the position between dualities that allows you to see both nature and humanity. The only thing that confuses me is the reason for the narrator's lack of involvement in either nature or humanity.

This is about the poets special relationship with nature..and how he approaches mankind only from a distance and so that he can always maintain his closeness to nature. Maybe it is a metaphor for the fact that he always keeps what is important to him in life within easy grasp. He only has to turn his head to see the thing he loves most, in this case, nature.
